Nutritious Nibbles

The Southern Star Newspaper today carries an article on Eleanor Leahy of Nibbles:

If you want really fresh, wholesome and divine cakes then visit Eleanor Leahy’s award-winning artisan bakery stall. You can buy her produce at the markets in Macroom, Ballincollig, Bishopstown, Mallow, Rathmore and even the Limerick Milk Market. Amazingly she also runs the café and bakery in Millstreet, Nibbles Food Emporium.  To be honest I have no idea how she maintains the passion and enthusiasm she has, as well as keeping her high standards of cooking and using local top quality ingredients, when much of her baking is hand made.

Mitchells in Millstreet

Hello, I am looking for any info on the Mitchells of Millstreet circa 1830-60s. I know that there were 2 brothers Michael Patrick and Dennis. I believe Dennis was born around 1838 and Michael around 1842. I was wandering if someone could possibly tell me how many Catholic parishes there were in the area at that time? I would like to see if they have any records of the Mitchells.
Thank you for your help, John Burgess email:<email>
